My 2 year old son has had runny nose and mild temperature. He's had very smelly stool that seem to have whiteish rubbery lumps/balls in them. Should I be concerned? He's otherwise very happy and is still eating and drinking. Thanks! Concerned first time mum.

it isn't a problem with his liver/gallbladder. I read white stool bits can mean that

No nothing of that sort. Only unchewed food passing undigested. With liver duct obstruction the whole stool is clay-colored.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
